wow...i just find this abysmal. not to say it's necessarily bad for all, but just ew. i prefer and recommend geany over this.
Good application, should still be easier to use...
Linus is right
This is a good text editor
There is only one editor! Emacs has been my favourite for over 30 years
At first it appears to be complicated but it is worth the effort
You can find a better editor for a particular programming language. You won't find a better one if you use multiple languages.
Dude no, use VIM instead. Emacs is evil and will give you ass cancer.
There's a learning curve but it's awesome (fetch version 24 on Synaptic)
make the terminal Awesome
it's hard to use for newbie as me
slime, org-mode, supports everything under the sun -- with common, but customizable keybindings, extensible and thoroughly hypertextual.. what could _possibly_ be better?
it's a so so app..
First app I install in a new distribution. If you write code, it's worth the effort to learn.
When will emacs 24 arrive?
Once you know how to properly use Emacs, anything else feels very substandard.
A lot more than just an editor. It's amazing the variety of things you can do with Emacs, give it a try.
